down on what n.s.a. is doing? >> well, the grehing is we live a democracy. if we don't like what n.s.a. is doing we can get rid of the government and put in a different government. i think -- actually we've been collecting this information for so long, and long before n.s.a. was collecting it. let me tell you who was collecting it: american express, visa, all of your credit card data we have -- all of your financial records. this whole issue of privacy is utterly fascinating to me. for example, we could do a much better job in the whole new area of privacy which is medical records. >> rose: right. >> if we could take our medical records and put them in a database we could then figure out what drugs worked for what people. so we take all the medical records then all the gino mick data about the people and we put in the a database and figure out what therapies they're getting, what therapies work and don't work because there's this big database where you should take lipitor, you should take crestor. it could be very scientific. we could do a draw dramatically better job of treating peopl

like three-letter acronyms, n.s.a.'s current p.r. problem notwithstanding. h.v.f. stands for hard, valuable fun. those are the three necessary conditions for me to get out of bed and go to work. hard. it's no fun solving problems that are easy. somebody's already doing it. it's not defensible. it's not that exciting so to solve not a hard problem so it has to be difficult to do. hard. valueable? it better make the world a bert place. bang your head against the wall, you might break the wall or break the head, it's not helping anybody. valuable means impacting the world for the better. you have to be passionate about it. i've done a few things in my life that i felt deeply about and didn't care and some things that i didn't say t care that much and fun is the short hand for whatever hard problem i solve, i have to ultimately care about. so hard, valuable, fun. >> there's things you read about you don't sleep much at one time. >> i don't sleep much. >> rose: is it -- what is it? three to five hours? >> i think i average four and a half these days. >> well, that's three to five. how

learning more about the this nsa spying scandal. what are the odds that the only emails and phone calls the nsa didn't listen to are anthony weiner's? what are the odds? [ laughter ] you know, i love how two years ago when weiner resigned, he said more embarrassing pictures may come out in the future. [ light laughter ] do you know how he knew that? 'cause he went home after that and sent them. [ laughter ] that's how he knew. that's how he was able the to predict the future. [ cheers and applause ] well, did you hear weiner's latest defense? he said, "what politician doesn't send out junk mail?" okay. [ rim shot ] [ laughter ] you know, i know we are all used to seeing vain politicians. we just don't need to see their veins. okay. [ laughter ] that's the problem. anyway, after admitting to sending pictures of himself to a woman a year after he quit congress to supposedly seek treatment, he now says it's all in the rear-view mirror. [ light laughter ] well, that's something you don't want to see, huh? [ laughter ] bad enough seeing his junk on your iphone. [ screams ] anyway, he was tex

. the nsa hasn't been totally kneecapped in terms of its capabilities. so i think it is an important point to keep in mind. >> it's also become quite political. yesterday on the sunday talk shows you could see a lot of congressman from both sides losay, the nsa program is working. we need to keep it going. this is presiltionly why we have it. this is why it is a defective fool and this is from democrats and republicans. i think will you see the administration use whatever intercepts were picked up on this aqap plot to show that you know despite the reservations this is an effective program and they're going to keep doing it. >> thank you very much, peter, thank you, jay. thank you very much, mark. >> thank you. >> we'll be back. stay with us. >> rose: atul gawande is here, a surgeon at boston's brigham and women's hospital. a professor at the harvard school of public health and harvard medical school and a staff writer for "the new yorker" magazine. he has written extensively and thoughtfully about the flaws of our health-care system. his readership extends all the way to the white house.

of information he has about american intelligence about the n.s.a. for their own good. that would be acting they might consider in their own national interest. so are they doing that giving him everything he knows? >> and you can ask the same question about the chinese when he was in hong kong. >> rose: what do you assume? >> i would assume that their intelligence services would be delinquent in their duty if they didn't make every effort to do that. i don't know the answer. >> rose: i talked to a former c.i.a. person and said would we be doing that if we had the opportunity? of course. >> his father says it hasn't happened. i don't know. i don't know. >> rose: okay, what about syria? is -- where do you think -- where do you think the effort to put together some kind of -- and the united states desperately wants and john kerry desperately wants russian cooperation to figure out a way to stop syria from becoming a stalemate and a civil war that just goes on and on and on. >> rose: and putin wants it, too. so you would think that would be enough to act on. here's the conflict no story began y

(laughter) which i guess is what we'll call tonight's segment. (laughter) because that feels about right. that feels in your heart about right. the audience often looked to jon to make them, to help them articulate very complicated, painful feelings. and something like the trayvon martin verdict would be a moment where i could feel in the audience people are looking to jon. they're not looking to me. what they want is jon. so i fel
